​Stained Glass Cross

This song is by Down and appears on the album Down II (2002).

Started from the start, wearing out the headstones
Was the in, was the right, taking out a life loan

Hey old man, when I'm going six feet down
You gotta make that promise to me
A stained glass cross lay behind my head

When taken by the undertaker, no questions anymore
It's higher then the black sky, gets you lower than the floor

Hey old man, when I'm going six feet down
You gotta make that promise to me
A stained glass cross looking down on me

Hey old man, when I'm going six feet down
You gotta make that promise to me
A stained glass cross hanging over me

I was just a young boy, my father sounded crazy
My death he couldn't bear to see, neither joking, sleeping, lazy

Hey old man, when you're going six feet down
I gotta make that promise to you
A stained glass cross lay behind your head

Hey young man, when you're going under that down
I made a secret promise to you
A stained glass cross looking down on you
